“Drums, strike alarum, raise them from their sport,”
    Young Mortimer in Marlowe’s Edward II, 2.3.26

Breaking, briefly, with tradition, as this is a “Close enough to count” scenario, but using Young Marlow as a source, an early contemporary of Shakespeare. There was something about the scene that reminded me we needed to be reminded.

Mercury starts its retrograde pattern in earnest and? Total Lunar Eclipse July 27, 2018. That means?

The part of the passage I liked the best was the part about, “Drums, strike alarum...” and that fits well for The Majestic Leo.

One of my classic mental images of The Leo was an old family friend (Leo in case it wasn’t obvious), at the head of the family dining table, carrying on about an issue. Might’ve been a big deal, might’ve been a small point of order, but a big deal in The Leo’s eyes.

As the “Lord of the Manor,” that Majestic Leo held court and held forth about whatever it was. He also sat there and lifted not one finger to address the issue itself. Hint: birthday time, Leo time, maybe be your “lordly” self for this next few days.

When in doubt? The twin influences of the eclipse in its location, in your chart, and the mercurial Mercury pattern suggests that there is doubt. More doubt than usual. More questioning. More questions than answers. More of my patented, trademarked, “I don’t know.” So the answer, and I lifted this from an internet meme, a simple piece of art?

Happy birthday! Some years ago, a storekeeper in San Antonio had an interesting bit of her own graffiti — and this came up recently. Ten ways to make iced coffee more interesting, and her solution? Tequila. I don’t even know what the rest of the link-bait article suggested. I liked an iced espresso. Done properly, it lasts all afternoon, and is only a single/double shot of espresso, a proper receptacle, and ice. Gradually, the ice melts. Reminds me of a summer trip in England. It’s your birthday time. I’m unsure if the reference about ways to make iced coffee interesting or the manufacture of iced coffee in certain climates, unsure if that applies. But the tequila in the coffee? If it really is a birthday time, and it is the time for Cancer/Moon children, and the very edge of Leo-time, and as such, think about that first version of interesting coffee. Then think about getting someone else to do the driving. Get a non-Cancer to drive, and have some interesting coffee. Works for me.

What was the best summer job you had? I worked for close to two years as a bartender at a sleazy bar in the marginally bad side of town, from day bartender to bar manager, to featured star to unemployed, all for what should’ve just been a summer job. But as summer jobs go, think that was one of my best. So the question is, what was your best summer job?
